CALL FOR PAPERS: Monarchies and War, 27 May 2014
As part of King’s College London’s centenary commemoration of the Great War, ICBH is proud to announce its annual conference on 'Monarchies and War'. The organisers are looking for a range of papers that consider the role of monarchies from around the world in the First World War and in subsequent conflicts. We hope that the conference will cover the diplomatic, political, military and social aspects of their roles, and would welcome comparative perspectives.
